Take a beautiful walk over Pepin Island and enjoy the phenomenal scenery of Cable Bay and Tasman bay along the way. Nestled amongst native kanuka and coastal New Zealand bush, situated on a cliff is Rocky Point Hut. Stay some nights in the beautiful and private hut with a comfortable wood interior and take in all the incredible views. Spend your time relaxing and treat yourself in the hot outdoor bath with a panoramic view over the Abel Tasman ocean. The perfect setting for a romantic retreat.
